Gender & Gender Identity Colloquium 2015 Schedule
Is gender relevant to the 21st Century? How do gender difference and power relations influence us? How do transgender and gender identities intersect with other identities? The Women's & Gender Studies announces a public colloquium, Gender & Gender Identity Colloquium, which will take place on the campus of Texas Tech University, Friday, October 23, 2015.
Since its inception in 2009, the colloquium has served as a forum where speakers, discussants, presenters, panelist and the general audience can engage in vigorous exchanges centering on gender and gender identity in terms of empowerment and commitment to social justice.
We invite submissions for individual papers or full panels highlighting feminist research, in progress or completed, on gender and gender identity. The colloquium is open to all Texas Tech University undergraduates, graduate students, staff and faculty from all disciplines. Additionally, other members of the region, state and national institutions are also invited to present and to attend at their own expense. Deadline for submitting your abstract was October 9. Check back next fall for our submission process.
This event is FREE and open to the public, unless otherwise noted.
